basic canyoneering skills workshop - September 25, 2010

Whether you want to learn new skills, or just want to practice in a canyoneering friendly environment, this will be a good opportunity. Ascending, self rescue, passing a knot, on rappel and or ascending, and basic knots will be covered. Participants will need a harness, carabiner and rappel device, along with a helmet if you are planning on getting off the ground. Plus any other gear you need for what you want to do- if you want to learn to ascend you should have a couple of ascending devices or rope grabs of one kind or another. If you don't have any such devices or are not sure what they even are, i will bring an assortment for you to try and learn with. Please preregister, i do not want to get too large a group.
